Once upon a time, a group of Shanghai Expats decided to meet at a local cafe to compare notes and enjoy some coffee to start off the weekend. It grew into what was known as the Saturday Morning Coffee Meeting and has been a source of many friendships and good times.
While the official coffee meeting was moved to Sundays at XinTiandi, for me, it never quite had the same charm as the Saturday morning ones. Saturday mornings were more relaxed and allowed participants to have a bit more free time to socialize, grab lunch and sometimes, many times, we hung out all day and into the evening parting sometimes after a late night out! So, after carefully considering my free time, i am going to start up a saturday morning event again though this time in Zhong Shan Park area to make it more convenient for me and those in the central and western parts of the city to come by.
Location changed to:
level B1, 999 Changling lu.
Metro: line 2, Zhongshan park, exit 6.
- When coming by metro, go to exit 6, and on top of the stairs it is at your right in the corner (Before entering the Gloria mall itself).
- If traveling above ground, it is on Changning lu, between the Cloud nine mall and Zhongshan park, in the basement of the "Gloria/Suning" shopping mall (opposite the small "Metro town mall"). Take the entrance to the metro, then after first flight of stairs down it is at your right in the corner.
Meeting starts between 11:30 and 12:00
IMPORTANT NOTE: I have gotten messages asking about this event so I want to clarify a few things. This event's intent is to give Expats and their families a chance to meet each other, hang out, and compare notes, to basically help make the experience of living and working in Shanghai a positive one. Any expat is welcome, and any locals who will add-value to the above discussions are also welcome, but please, no commercial discussions will be allowed, and no soliciting by language teachers, nor language exchanges etc... you can do your own meetings for that.
This WILL be enforced as its is all about expats getting a chance to meet.
